1940s Maternity Style Video


Every once in a very great while, I make a video and upload it to Youtube. (Ha!) 

The one I just uploaded is featuring a maternity outfit I wore this weekend! It's made of true vintage, reproduction, and me-made garments.  It's RIDICULOUSLY comfortable and is going to be perfect when it gets hot this summer.

Versatility at Its Finest: Gingham Peasant Blouse


I wanted to feature this peasant blouse because it’s a fantastic type of garment for any vintage woman’s wardrobe. Its versatility and classic style makes it a really good silhouette to add to your closet!

I made mine from a vintage 1940s pattern, but peasant blouse patterns were one of those classic styles that were popular for decades (and still are). It should be easy to find such a pattern if you want to make one for yourself. 

Vintage Roses Tea Cozy


On weekends I haven't been going out much, and I've paused my garment-knitting projects until after my pregnancy when I can see where my measurements land. Up until now, garments have been my go-to craft projects, so I've been branching out and seeing what non-personal-garment things I can make, like a tea cozy!

Wonderful News!

Flashback Summer: 1940s 1950s Unique Vintage blue velvet gown

I don't know about you guys, but I have an irrational need to be ready for formal events. Like, what if I get invited to a ball? What if the governor calls and wants me to go to her New Year's Day brunch? What if I find out I'm a princess and Julie Andrews is my grandmother and I have a coronation to attend?!

How horrifically awful would it be to get an invitation to such amazing events and have to go underdressed because I had nothing proper to wear?!  The HORROR!

Snow Teeth Whitening


Teeth whitening is one of those things that I've always thought about but hadn't tried for myself until recently. I've had pretty naturally bright teeth, but as the years have gone by and my tea and coffee habit has grown, I've noticed that my teeth are starting to stain a bit. 

Turns out, the ladies of yesteryear were also concerned about that!
